Now, Bruce Willis and his personal life are rarely out of the headlines these days…

  via Getty Images  

And there’s certainly a reason why!

He’s got quite a big family, some might say.

The Die Hard actor shares 3 children with ex-wife Demi Moore – thirty-two-year-old Rumer, twenty-nine-year-old Scout, and twenty-seven-year-old Tallulah.

Now, people have always admired Bruce Willis and Demi Moore for their lack of drama and conflict over the years…

And unlike many divorced couples, Demi and Bruce have co-parented their kids wonderfully with very minimal drama.

But in 2020…

The divorced pair did something rather unlikely together.

Millions were quarantining themselves in their homes due to the global pandemic…

And with the lockdown not excluding the rich and famous, Demi also had to quarantine… With her ex-husband.

Alongside quarantining with her 3 daughters and their partners in the summer of 2020…

Bruce decided to stay with them — forming one big, happy family.

It was, of course, refreshing to see a divorced couple maintaining such a strong and healthy friendship…

  via Getty Images  

And from the looks on everyone’s faces, it formed an incredibly happy family environment.

However, there was one thing on everyone’s mind…

  via Getty Images  

What did Bruce’s current wife, Emma Hemming Willis, think of this?

advertisement

It can’t have been easy having your husband choose to quarantine with an ex…

  via Getty Images  

But amazingly so, she took to Instagram to comment on the family photo, saying: “Not many can pull that color off! Lookin’ good squad.”

And it didn’t take long for Demi to weigh in on the unconventional setup.

  via Getty Images  

The actress opened up to her friend, Naomi Campbell on her YouTube series, No Filter with Naomi, about spending the early part of her quarantine in Idaho with her ex-husband, their 3 daughters, and later Willis’ 2 younger daughters and his current wife, Emma.

​”There’s been a lot of challenges and a lot of tragedy with the pandemic, but I also think there’s been a lot of gifts and blessings.”

She then continued: “I personally feel like I was really grateful for things slowing down and the time that we had. It worked out that Bruce came and spent time with us and then his current wife and their small daughters joined a little bit later when the kids were finished with school.”

“It was really a blessing,” she said of the experience.

  via Getty Images  

“It’s everything that’s come forward has allowed us to reevaluate what’s important and what needs attention that has been overlooked and neglected. It was amazing.”

Emma didn’t seem to have an issue at all…

Showing how much trust and love she has for her husband!

Bruce and Emma clearly have a very strong and healthy marriage…

And their 2 young daughters seem so happy with their loving family life.

But in more recent times…

  via Getty Images  

Heartbreaking news has fallen on the family, that has caused Bruce to step back from acting.

Bruce has been diagnosed with aphasia, which, according to the Mayo Clinic, is a brain condition that prevents cognitive abilities from working as they should.

It is usually lessened with speech therapy, however, “although most people make significant progress, few people regain full pre-injury communication levels,” the organization says.

Bruce’s family gave a statement about the news on social media…

  via Getty Images  

Writing in an Instagram post, they said: “To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family, we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities. As a result of this and with much consideration, Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.”

“This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support,” it continued.

  via Getty Images  

“We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.”

They concluded: “As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”

“Bruce and I became good friends when we shared 2 of our biggest hits together, Pulp Fiction and Look Who’s Talking,” John began. “Years later he said to me, ‘John, I just want you to know that when something good happens to you I feel like it’s happening to me.’ That’s how generous a soul he is. I love you, Bruce.”
